Enhancing the Employee Experience: Empowering Leaders (Part Two)

employee retention and compensation

In the past few years, the newest generations of workers have been graduating from university and are hungry to cut their teeth professionally. However, even if the pickings are slim, this talented generation is quite selective with their choice of employer. Who they work for is almost as important as the work itself.

Pivot HR is here to help Toronto business leaders make their companies the best they can be.

Inspiring Leadership Qualities

A remarkable leader worth following knows the importance of having a metaphorical toolbox filled with many invaluable skills. Here are five qualities we believe to be the most valuable overall for leaders to exude.

  • Compassionate
    • When a leader genuinely cares for their employees, it radiates through the team. For example, turning a mistake into a learning opportunity rather than a slap on the wrist. We all have lives outside of work; a good leader understands that.
  • Decisive/Problem-Solving
    • This ties in with having strong forward-thinking skills; best-laid plans are always subject to change. Teams look to their leaders for a cool head they trust to make the right decision under pressure. Flexing your industry knowledge and competency before your team in moments of distress will build the trust and confidence of those following your lead.
  • Strong Communication
    • Transparent with intentions and expectations. It does not make their team guess where they stand.
  • Dependable
    • No one wants to manage their manager. When you say you will do something, you do it. A leader that follows through on their word will inspire trust and confidence in their team.
  • Humble
    • Being a leader is not a popularity contest. Seeking to impress your colleagues with cocky showmanship will probably have the opposite of the intended effect. Humility and integrity are vital characteristics of an inspiring leader.
